Tracy LaLonde

Tracy LaLonde is burnout’s worst enemy. With over 30 years of experience in training, consulting, and professional development, LaLonde is on a mission to change the way law firms engage with their teams.

Her courses, keynotes, and guidance, backed by cutting-edge research, make a lasting impact on lawyers and business professionals, propelling them to new heights of success.

From her early days developing and delivering training in the consulting industry to her transition to the legal field in 2000, LaLonde’s career has focused on helping others grow. As a professional development leader in three AmLaw 100 firms and then a partner in a consulting firm teaching lawyers how to develop business, she has seen the transformative power of effective training and guidance.

In 2020, LaLonde refocused her efforts to help high-achieving lawyers and firms improve their work lives. She began with the publication of her book, “The Joychiever Journey: Alleviate Burnout and Design Your Life for More Joy,” created to help individuals cultivate a better work-life balance, setting the stage for a happier and more fulfilling career.

But she didn’t stop there. She recognized the need to address engagement on both macro and micro levels. Drawing on best practices from multiple disciplines, as well as her own Joychiever’s Hierarchy of Engagement, LaLonde tailors her approach to the client-serving firms, making the suggested techniques accessible, practical, and inspirational.

LaLonde earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
